Contingency contracting is the process where vital supplies and services needed to maintain deployed forces are obtained on behalf of the United States Government. These actions are used for emergencies, such as, disaster relief from hurricanes or from terrorist activities that occur within the United States or for actions that occur outside of the United States in order to support the deployed units. Due to the current trend in the DoD to contract out more products and services on the battlefield, an increase demand has been placed on contingency contract personnel. The purpose of this MBA Project is to develop and publish a Contingency Contracting MCI to assist the Marine Corps in training its contract personnel in preparation for deployment to a contingency operation. Currently there is not a requirement for the contracting specialist to attend a formal school prior to supporting a contingency operation. Furthermore, there are limited spaces for Marines to attend CON 234. The Contingency Contracting MCI will aid the contracting personnel with the training needed to be successful in a contingency environment and efficiently and effectively support Marine Corps units abroad. This project was sponsored by Headquarters Marine Corps, Installation and Logistics, Logistics Branch in conjunction with the Marine Corps Institute (MCI). The MBA Report has identified several problems in the current ability of the Marine Corps to train contracting personnel in contingency contracting and provides recommendations for further study. A draft Contingency Contracting MCI is included in the report.
